Blacks Cemetery is the oldest cemetery in Clark County, located roughly four miles outside of New Carlisle.
Named after Samuel Black, who donated the land and became the first permanent “resident” in 1814, this cemetery is said to be haunted by a variety of perplexing phenomena.
Visitors have reported hearing disembodied voices and witnessing mysterious lights while walking the rows of tombstones. Some have even said they’ve seen ghostly shapes and forms on occasion.
The cemetery is still cared for, but hasn’t had any new burials since 1939.
The cemetery is located on State Route 235, near Marquart Road, in Pike Township.
